National Coastwatch – FROWARD POINT


128,000 steps for Froward Point!

Despite a week’s illness intervening, Royal Tunbridge Wells resident Kate Tremlett has raised £720 for the Coastwatch station at Froward Point near Kingswear by running 72 miles during September. Kate’s grandfather Alan Barrett from Paignton is a Watchkeeper at Froward Point and also one of the dedicated team maintaining the WW2 gun battery buildings leased by Froward Point from the National Trust. Thanks to three jars of energy-giving peanut butter Kate was able to achieve the fundraising via in 13 hours taking 128,012 steps along the way.

Station Manager Glyn Watkin in thanking Kate said “We have several projects in mind to improve the service we offer and this magnificent effort by Kate will go a long way to help us achieve our goals. We are immensely grateful.”
